On our second morning of the photo tour, Darwin knew the best place to go for a surefire sunrise scene. Leaving Jasper and heading towards the east park gates, there is a natural spring system that is open year round. Its named the "Glory Hole" by landscape photographer Daryl Benson. Rumor has it thathe came to this spot countless times and never had a bad shoot. We really rushed to catch the great light as we might have taken too much time stuffing ourselves with some awesome Raspberry White Chocolate scones from the Bears Paw Bakery prior to leaving Jasper.
I tried a lot of filter combinations to create this scene. In the end, a 1 second exposure blurred the water and painted some light in the clouds. It was simply an amazing sunrise that I will never forget!
